Samsung Series 3: Impressive Performance and Portability at an Affordable Price


Samsung is on a roll with its new "Series X" line of laptops. The Series 9 is an expensive, high-style ultraportable that provides real competition for the Macbook Air. The Series 5 was the first Google Chromebook to go on sale, and while we're not...

Good performance for the price ; Small, slim, and light

Display isn't as good as we expect from Samsung ; Poor touchpad rocker button

Samsung packs impressive performance into a small, light, and affordable laptop.

Review Samsung Series 3 350E7C-S08DE Notebook


Magic number seven. An Intel i7 processor, a 7670 AMD graphics card and a 750 GB hard drive all packed into a 17.3-inch notebook. It's easy to see Samsung is hot on the number seven. But are we hot on the notebook too?

Very high application performance, Reasonably minimal noise emission under load, Anti-reflective display, Good gaming performance, Useful input devices, Remains cool under load, Good performance for comparably little money and cool temperatures to boot

Slow hard drive, No second bay for a hard drive/SSD, Display has poor contrast, Low brightness in battery mode, Unimpressive case stability, Short battery life, More contrast and brightness for the display and very importantly: no loss of brightness in...

Review Samsung Series 3 350V5C Notebook


Affordable quality? Samsung tries to address both overall value and the quality of the hardware and offers the NP350V5C at an attractive price point - but equipped with a quad-core processor, middle-class AMD GPU, and 8 GB of RAM. How does the...

Matte display, Low weight, Price-performance ratio, Battery life, Keyboard, The low weight and very fair price

Touchpad, Not very sturdy, Lower performance when running on battery, Higher rigidity and resilience - especially around the keyboard area and for the display lid itself

The Samsung NP350E5C-A01IN Laptop offers an impeccable assortment of oodles of panache and first-rate features. The elfin-like form and excellent portability make it the best travel buddy of the high-heeled frequent flyer. Hewed with incredible...

Samsung NP350 (U2B-A02)


Samsung's NP350 was not our top ultraportable performer for 2011. It's right on the average battery life, weight and volume of the models we've tested. Still, it combines a set of reliable, well-implemented features into a solid build, at a...

Reliable and light!


I know it won't make much difference to folks looking for laptops in 2015, but for posterity, I'd like teh internetz to know that this machine was one of the good ones. This is hands-down my favorite laptop ever. I just did a search, and to get...

Over the past 3 years, this machine has been rock-solid reliable through dozens of trips, stickers, curious kids, rough treatment, and software and hardware upgrades. It was easy to pull out the original RAM and HD and put in an 8GB stick and a new...

The metal top keyboard plate has become separated from the frame on one of the corners. It's a little annoying, but it's the only thing I've found wrong with the machine in almost 3 years

Great Computer if bought at the right price


I got mine for 550 with Promotions and coupons, at that price it was a steal but for the retail price of 750 i would suggest looking elsewhere because you can get a better deal. i ended up downgrading to windows 7 and got a slight fps boost in hitman...

Core I5 3210M ; 6 GB ddr3 at 1600 Mhz ; 2GB AMd Radeon Hd 7730m ; Matte Display

Avg res screen 1366x 768 ; Build looks better than it feels, Creaks and bends a little but i guess that is to be expected

Great Gaming Laptop at a Great Gaming Price


Overall, I'm very pleased with this machine. I wouldn't recommend this to a hardcore gamer as the 7730M can't handle everything on maximum settings, but it works well for moderate gamers. The most realistic example I can give of this computer's...

This laptop has nice hardware for those of you who want to play games on the go. It will zip through any tough programs you can throw at it. I've tried After Effects Rendering, Team Fortress 2, and even all source games run like a dream. The battery...

The mouse gestures can be finicky, and the wireless card can also have limited connectivity on boot. But neither of those cons outweigh the terrible OS: Windows 8. Windows 8 is the ugliest and least innovative operating system Microsoft has ever...

Great Price - Great for Everyday & Most Gaming


Not too difficult swapping out hard drive. If you read other comments (A ma... on) on difficulty of BIOS update, ignore them. Fairly simple to switch. F2 to BIOS update. Select BOOT - disable Secure Boot, Select OS MODE - UEFI OS. (btw the latter works...

Good price; addl graphics card for most games (AMD Radeon™ HD 7730M Graphics); Bluetooth 4.0 driver ; Graphics Cards Notes ; You can not 'turn on/off' the graphics card for the entire system ; I wanted to use it whith power plugged in and go back to...

Windows 8 - the metro UI is completely usleess for non-touch screen hardware ; Once I boot up, go directly to Desktop; Getting used to Win 8 ; The Hard drive (ST500LM012) is kind of old & clunky; recommend a hybrid drive ; Installed Windows 7 on...

Not too shabby really. Some minor quirks but a decent machine so far


The colors seem a little blown out compared to the displays of other computers I use. I'm not sure if it's the samsung screen or the settings in win8. There are display "themes" you can play around with, but it was pretty drastic at first before I got...

Pretty beefy graphics capabilities, I've been able to run Borderlands 1 and Fallout New Vegas on high graphics with no problems ; Feels pretty light and the battery life is decent, even when watching movies

I've been running into issues getting the keyboard and trackpad to wake up after sleep/hibernate. Every now and then I'll open my laptop which wakes it from sleep mode, but the keyboard and trackpad will be unresponsive and can only be fixed from a...
